Yesterday was the fifteenth day, the day marking the end of the Chinese New Year celebrations. In Malaysia, this day is known as Chap Goh Mei. On a celebratory point of view, this night sees the gathering of family members as they sit down to a meal together. Offerings and prayers are also held on a grand scale on this particular night. Sometimes a chinese cultural performance is held with pretty lantern displays and lion dances in the evening to end the Chap Goh Mei celebrations. Aside from being tagged as the last day, Chap Goh Mei is also known as the Chinese Valentine's Day ~ a day, whereby young women, will head to the nearby river and throw mandarin oranges so that their wish will come true (that their future spouse will pick the orange up). However, in modern day setting, this tradition is dying fast. Below is a lion dance video I was able to record on my digital camera when I was at the Hilton Hawaiian Village for CNY two weekends ago. Enjoy!
Cupid's Around the Corner!
Yup, it's that time of year again. Ummm...just one more day left for Valentine's Day, a day honoring love and lovers! Do you have anything special planned for this romantic day? As for me, I still have yet to find the right Valentine's Day gift for Ryan. Aiyo, I've gotten so bad and it's rather unusual for me to wait to the very last minute before getting a gift but that's how I've become these days! With that in mind, I was hoping to find something over the weekend but since he was off from work, I didn't get a chance to go shopping on my own. Yikes! I guess I'll be at the mall tonight after work searching for his gift. Don't tell him though, okay! Good thing he does not read my blog (lol)

"So you want to know me? Romantic and logical ~ Loyal and always true ~ Funloving crazy and very quiet when needed ~
Sensible and down to earth...to sum it up, I guess I'm pretty much a "nice girl", hopefully in a good way, who's also a bit of a geek"
Here I am as perfect as I'm ever going to be.
You'll see, love me for me.
Stick around, I'm not the kind of girl you wanna leave.
